The Lunde arboretum
At the Lunde arboretum by Dragsvik you will find around 130 different species of trees and bushes from all over the world. Four different trees are measured to be the biggest ones in the world on the latitute. The cause is the Golf Stream bringing milde and moist sea air. The trees were planted in the 1850s by the vicar Sverdrup. Lunde is the rectory in the Balestrand parish. Today the old rectory garden is an arboretum.
Hiking trail to Tjuatoten
Tjuatoten is a mountain peak towering over Dragsvik and Balestrand. A hiking trail goes up the mountainside from Dragsvik to the top of Tjuatoten. This is a demanding hike. At the top you have fantastic views over the Sognefjord, including out towards Stølsheimen and in towards Fjærland and Leikanger.
Or you may take the shorter hike to the power masts.
